Missing music from Kill Bill vol. 1

There were a lot of tracks used in the movie during various scenes that were left off the soundtrack to Kill Bill vol. 1. I found this list, oddly enough, in a review of Kill Bill vol. 1 on Amazon.

The list is semi long so I’ve decided to make this an extended entry.

Of all of them I wanted the song where she first challenges Oren Ishii, called Death Rides a Horse. Well, I ‘found’ it.
